A Cyber Potato's Life - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

When my time is up and gone
And I’m no longer on face book
Or no longer on the twitter page
Do not cry for me, please.......
Having lived the better part of my life
As just a another ‘virtual’, human being
Making virtual friends, virtual enemies
On a key board with lots of potato wafers
Day and night, night and day in cyber space
Endlessly seeking, searching and finding nothing.........

    Ralph Waldo Emerson always stressed that given the chance to read or to get outside and live, you must choose the latter. A book then and the gadgets of the cyber-junky now. Living a virtual life could not possibly be more dull and safe. Your poem made me smile. Thanking God I am old enough to have experienced life unplugged. Wonderful writing! (Report) Reply

    Indeed a wonderful poem. It is all a vain seeking and searching and not finding anything. (Report) Reply

    This cyber world is indeed so very delusive; you know and yet you don't know or you can say you don't know and yet you claim to know. Valsa's comment is quite apt. (Report) Reply

    Virtual world has a magic sway
    How sad many end up as its prey
    From the real world you'll be far away
    So, from its strangling hold, better keep away!

    The poem is the vivid and beautiful description of an undisputed truth! ! (Report) Reply
